St. Dominic Savio


St. Dominic Savio Church serves the residents of Bass Lake and surrounding areas, as well as our guest visitors, particularly in the summer months. Our recently upgraded Grotto boasts of a beautiful contemplative Grotto in honour of St. Theresa of Lisieux, with exterior Stations of the Cross woven throughout the property surrounding the Grotto. In the early 50's Mass was held at the Old Pines with about 20 people attending. In the summer Mass was held at Camp St. Theresita, which was adjacent to the property the church now sits on. The church itself was built in 1960 with mostly volunteers; in 1966 the outside seating was added allowing people to sit inside or outside. The church offers a beautiful view of the mountains and towering pines. A peaceful setting for worship, peace and contemplation.
